Note: We are trying to ramp up some Python+Sugar projects, so we'd
love to hear from those of you who dabble in Python.

We will meet at SFSU Downtown Center from 10 am to 2pm on June 19.
Carol Ruth Silver will update us on the Realness Summit
(http://realness.org/) . We will also have Grant Bowman talk about the
XO Toaster project. Al Sweigart is also planning on being there. His
book "Invent with Python" is available online.

We'll also do the usual event updates with new builds for XO-1,
progress with XO 1.5 and school server hardware progress. I have the
latest build (RC2) for XO 1.5 and the os180py build for XO 1 (Paraguay
deployment build based on Fedora 11).
